My Favorite Things on Lyst Unveiled

Fashion must-haves on Lyst.

For those of us who have benefited from the perks of online shopping, we know oh so well what its like to spend our sweet time being productive while knowing we are not depriving ourselves of a little indulgence from time to time minus¬†the hassle of the metro traffic or combing through endless aisles of dress racks and lines of shoes. While others may justify the hours of walking in malls, that’s just not for me anymore since I’ve learned to shop online. If it’s workout I’m after, I can turn the a workout video on easily right at the comfort of my own home. No time wasted on commute, zero carbon footprint and all win for the ever busy me. ūüôā

There are a whole bunch of fashion sites on the world wide web, I know. But what sets Lyst apart, for me, is my ability to flag any item I find pricey and I get notified when that piece is on sale or is¬†affordable at another shop. The ability to track specific fashion pieces of my choice and getting a feedback when they hit the store – now that’s beyond valuable, don’t you think?

Here are some of the pieces I’ve bookmarked away and a couple I’m looking into purchasing soon – they’re already on sale! Yay!

Adrianna Papell Floral Matelassé Fit & Flare Dress

 

Floral Matelassé Fit & Flare Dress by Adrianna Papell

I love all Adrianna Pepell designs. They’re all so feminine, stylish and dainty. I have in fact one Adriana Pepell floral print stashed away in my closet that I won’t dare use anymore. Let’s just say, I need to lose a couple of pounds or so. ūüôā

What I specifically love about this particular Adrianna Papell Floral Matelass√© Fit & Flare Dress are the¬†metallic thread accents that intensify the luminous glow of the already charming party frock designed with a demure, cap-sleeve top and structured seaming down the flared skirt. What’s not to love! (more…)

Neutral Claire Scrunch Flats Dexflex by Dexter

There is no way I’m saying goodbye to March without letting you in on the most comfortable flats I have bought to date¬†– ¬†Claire Scrunch Flats Deflex by Dexter. Aside from a reader emailing me where I could buy them when she saw this post,¬†with me wearing the pair. You see, in the last couple of years I have bought a few named brands but was never really satisfied. This explains why I have not published reviews on them. Two of the brands I bought were Yosi Samra and Anthology. Both of which were a thousand or more bucks pricier than Claire Dexflex.

Claire Deflex by Dexter in Neutral

The neutral colored Anthology flats I bought some couple of years back were so pretty, it was hard to resist not to get hold of. But I have had to deal with bruised ¬†just under the ankle part and some corns on a one of my toes. For the record, the sizes I bought were ¬†just my size. Maybe I had to break them in and my Yosi Samra pair more than what I would have wanted. But how about the marks those break-in phase caused? Not pretty. Here’s what’s so sweet that I cannot bear not to let the word out — these Scrunch Flats Deflex by Dexter requires no break-in! Seriously. And no, this ain’t a sponsored post! ūüôā

I am so happy to finally find the perfect neutral colored flats for me in these Claire Scrunch Deflex by Dexter pair. ūüėÄ

Claire Deflex flats

Check out those garters. It is easy to see that those have a lot to do with these flats being ultra comfy.

Claire Scrunch Flats Dexflex by Dexter totally delivers comfort from first wear onwards. Yes, I cannot emphasize enough the NO NEED FOR BREAK-IN fact.

Asics Foot ID Scan and Gender Specific Shoes

Asics Foot ID Scan

Kikay Corner got invited last Friday, February 5, 2010 to the Asics Expo, where a team of Japanese experts explained the benefits of Foot ID Scan. The Foot ID Scan system utilizes a cross-section to measure all aspects of a person’s foot. One simply needs to stand on two pads found on the scanner, and information is then entered into the database. Additional data on a person’s running gait is collected after running on a special treadmill. A highly trained staff member interprets the information gathered, and will match the runner with a recommended Asics shoe.
